Specials alert: Seasonal Pantry

Seasonal Pantry is the adorable specialty food store around the corner from my apartment. You can find treats such as duck fat (a great gift for your chef friend/ fakeroommatebcyourparentsdontknowyoulivewithaguy), homemade cookie spread, jams, and bourbon cherries (a great gift for your ex/guywhodrinksfourcocktailsanightalone). In addition, on Wednesdays-Saturdays they hold a supper club which consists of a pre-fixed menu and wine pairings prepared by chef Dan O’Brien. O’Brien has been praised for his modern approach to rustic cooking.

Next Sunday, they are preparing a “Dine and dash” pop-up event at their store from 12pm-9pm. For $35, you will get a tagliatelle with classic butter sauce and shaved white truffles. Wine ($5) is optional. Reservations are available (the restaurant seats 12) in the store and by calling (202) 713-9866.

How to come off like a douche during a second date

If you tell the girl to pick the place for your second date, let her pick the place. Don’t show up, sit there next to her, and then actively try to find better options that suit your preferences. Come on!

Note: She picked Churchkey. I don’t know how craft beers, wings and rosemary chicken flatbread are offensive to anyone (people with gluten allergies are excluded from that statement).
